About JanaLynn Young

We are a family of 6, with two older boys and two younger girls, who are our inspiration for creating this villa. We live in Utah, and find the attractions and beaches of Central Florida to be the most enjoyable vacation destinations for our family, young to old, (even grandma and grandpa enjoy themselves!), because all the children and adults are equally entertained.

JanaLynn Young purchased this villa in 2012

Why JanaLynn Young chose Kissimmee

1. You can't get a villa any closer to Disney. So nice to come home mid-day and refresh the family for a night of fireworks and more attractions!

2. We love the vaulting, tall ceilings, and openness between kitchen, great family room and dining areas, allowing large groups to be together!

3. So many master bedrooms have their own private bathrooms. This is a must for adults!

4. The pool is large with a spa, and gets great sun year round. Some villa pools are pitifully small or shaded. And, the pool has direct bathroom access! Crazy, but there are actually very few villas that have this feature, which we find an essential for children (adults love it, too).

5. These themed rooms are the best of any we have ever seen, and so agree our guests. With toys and dress-ups, we've outdone even the Disney Resorts...come see for yourself!

If you've stayed in other large villas, you'll surely find this to be the best floor plan of any property in Orlando!

What makes this villa unique

In keeping with the age-less appeal of Disney and the ocean, we have created 'Happily Ever After' luxury playhouses to likewise fit the needs of children and adults alike. In addition to the fun of a private spa and pool, the villa is outfitted with all the comforts of home grown-ups are used to--ensuite bathrooms, a well-stocked kitchen with lot of small appliances and cookware, new, clean furnishings and linens; yet 'Happily Ever After' also has more kids' toys, dress-ups, movies and games than children can imagine! A stay at 'Happily Ever After' is a vacation in itself, for everyone!

FANTASTIC!! Perfect for small children

  • 5 of 5

This is a GREAT property and fantastic for young children (we had 5 year old and twin 3 year olds).

This house is 10 minutes from the parking lot of Disney World and 5 minutes from Animal Kingdom!!

Very convenient that strollers are provided, as well as safety jackets for the pool - less packing.

The house was clean and in a nice neighborhood.

The house is filled with toys had as much fun at Disney as they did discovering all the toys and fun surprises in the house. The movie room is great - we ended several nights watching a movie together. The pool is also clean.

The house is well laid out and easy for families. TWO thumbs up. This is a great find - one of the best.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

When you pull into the cul-de-sac and see the house from the outside it looks like a normal house and then you walk through the front door and find yourself in awe of the amazing personal touches and dedication that the owners have put into this home. Our party of 14, which consisted of 4 families, had more than enough room and the amenities that come with the house were beyond all of our imagination.

Between the beautifully done theme rooms, the toys & games & costumes for the kids and adults, the OUT OF THIS WORLD Star Wars game room and the swimming pool this was the place that everyone couldn’t wait to get back to at the end of a long hot day at the parks. In addition, the adult rooms were spacious, the beds were extremely comfortable and the washer and dryer made it extremely convenient to come home with very little dirty laundry. Not to mention that they are the machines everyone would love to have in their own home.

The property is fully stocked with all of the normal home items such as pots, pans, blankets etc., and you are able to travel light because you can stop in at the Target or Walmart about 5 miles away and get everything you will need such as shampoo and toothpaste for your stay. There is also a cute little grocery store up the street if you forgot anything.

Not only would we recommend this property, I would go as far as to say that if you are looking to stay somewhere really special, this is the place to be!!

Sincerely,

Jessica Perea

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything for everyone! So close to the parks but also a world away. The attention to detail in the rooms was amazing - the Harry Potter Room was a total win with my daughter while my son was fascinated with the pirate room. We ended up staying 'home' two days during our vacation just so they could play in the gorgeous pool and with all of the toys! Perfect spot - we will be back!

KC

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for our mother's 82nd birthday celebration. All of her children, grandchildren and families were present. Words can not express how much we enjoyed ourselves talking, laughing, cooking together. This house has every thing that you can imagine. The kitchen was well stocked. The three master suites had very comfortable beds with beautiful decor. The kids rooms were perfectly designed with Disney's characters theme and matching costumes. The kids enjoyed playing dress-up and the adults enjoyed watching them parade through the house. It was like a Disney's wonderland. When they got tired of that they would play in the media/star wars room until they all fell asleep. The weather was great so we spent a lot time sitting in the warm Jacuzzi on the pool deck. I like the fact that there were a lot of pool safety features in place to help us to keep everyone safe. Thank you Owners for making this an experience of a lifetime. We would highly recommend this property and look forward to doing it again in the future. .

Nearly As Much Fun As Disney Itself

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough positives about the house we rented on VRBO - Happily Every After. On previous trips we have stayed in Disney hotels but this time decided to give ourselves more space. There were 3 master suites (adult), three rooms and loft area themed for kids (Mickey's friends with a castle bed, princess bedroom, Pirates of the Carribean with a ship bed and wall painted like the sea, and the loft area a Harry Potter theme). The garage has been turned into a media/Star Wars room with huge wall hung screen and every techie game a kid or grown up would want. Life size Star Wars figures and cut outs are everywhere. There's a pool and hot tub in a screen room. The pools are heated but it was too cold and windy for us to use the pool. Every room has great costumes to try on and pretend. They are all sizes and ages so the entire family can get into it (Think Christmas card photos). When the Super Bowl got boring (and what fun watching that on the big screen) my daughter and I and one of the grandkids tried on as many costumes as we could. The house was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils and gadgets. There were plenty of places to eat, kitchen and dining room. TV's were in almost every room if you want that. We found the price to be very reasonable, especially when compared to Disney properties. My husband had all the contact with the owner who was helpful, responsive, and easy to work with. This house is great for large family gatherings or several families. Getting to and from Disney did not take any time at all and we did not have any traffic problems. The grandkids and adults agreed the house was a key part of our wonderful Disney Vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! Haha, I loved to hear that "when the Super Bowl got boring" there were plenty of cosplay adventures! Wow, if we can compete with the Super Bowl, we've got it made !!! I hope you do send some amazing family cosplay photos for your Chr6istmas cards! That's what we do, too. And honestly, our family costume contests are always our funnest memories from our Disney trips! Glad you loved it, and please come back!!!
